Inside, too, the Estate adopts the Saloon’s award-winning design.The dashboard can be adorned with two optional wide, high-resolution and brilliant displays, each with a 12.3-inch screen.Placed under a shared glass cover, they merge to form a widescreen dashboard. Drivers can configure the fully digital display to show the information and views that are relevant for them. There are three different styles to choose from: “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive”.
Touch‑sensitive controls on the steering wheel, which are making their début in the new E-Class, allow the instrument cluster and multimedia system to be controlled at the swipe of a finger. Further controls are provided in the form of a touchpad with controller in the centre console, which can also recognise handwriting, plus the LINGUATRONIC voice control system. There are also direct-access buttons for controlling the air conditioning, for example, and for convenient activation and deactivation of certain driving assistance systems.
